Professional Logo Design vs Logo Contests?

Top 3 reasons why it is better to go for a professional logo design rather than holding a logo contest.

1. It’s Cheaper?

: Yes, contrary to what the logo contest websites have you think, it is more expensive to have your logo designed in a contest. Even though you may start with a money back guarantee for $199, as soon as you start filling the form, you soon realise that without awarding at least $300 and purchasing expensive upgrades, your contest won’t receive any serious designer.

2. Serious Designers:

There is no guarantee if your contest will ever get any serious designer bidding for. Why would a talented designer bid on a contest where his ideas are often stolen by some other designer or chances be that he is one of the 20 designers bidding and even after 5 revisions, he is still not awarded the project?

3. Authenticity / Copyright:

Even though the logo contest claim that their designers submit 100% original design, there are often times that the designer submits a design which is copied or inspired from another logo, this could pose a serious threat to your business later on when the original owner of the logo files a lawsuit. Designers in these contest often use “ready to use icons or graphics” which removes the uniqueness of your logo.
Your logo is the first and the most important thing for your business. It represents your business and often times, it can make your break a business. It is advisable to spend some time thinking about how you would like your logo to be and then hiring a professional logo designer to give it shape.
